The subjects offered by the General Education courses, which cover nearly half of the whole curriculum, are mandatory. The curriculum of the
General Education courses consists of required courses which nurture basic skills and knowledge in order to establish knowledge in specialized
fields during the five year course.
In the beginning years, students study basic subjects taken up at ordinary high school, such as Modern Japanese, Social studies, Mathematics, Science and English. In order to enhance English language competency and communicative skills, English conversation classes taught by a native speaker are offered for the freshmen and the third year students.
In the fourth and fifth years, students are required to study Literature, Philosophy, Advanced English, and Social Sciences.
Students are also expected to join homeroom activities every week from the first year through the third year. Those activities give students opportunities to develop characters endowed with responsibility and wisdom.
Thus, the General Education courses give students knowledge and skills that will serve them well in their personal and professional life in the future.
